This extension works like a web clipper, but it downloads articles in a markdown format.
This is a Firefox and Google Chrome extension to clip websites and download them into a readable markdown file. Please keep in mind that it is not guaranteed to work on all websites.
To use this add-on, simply click the add-on icon while you are browsing the page you want to save offline. A dialogue asks you where to save the generated markdown file.
It uses the following two libraries:
- Readability.js by Mozilla in version from commit 977be42d1fb33781401001318813ab9fe4568647. This library is also used for the Firefox Reader View and it simplifies the page so that only the important parts are clipped. (Licensed under Apache License Version 2.0)
- Turndown by Dom Christie in version 5.0.1 is used to convert the simplified HTML (from Readability.js) into markdown. (Licensed under MIT License)
